Senior Center Art Exhibit

The walls on the entry hall at the Senior Center looked so bare after the Silver Arts exhibits were removed, so our mixed media group that meets on Mondays was asked to put up an exhibit of our art work.   Here are a few of mine.

The last one is a watercolor on paper that is framed. We have 25 paintings hanging, but I was unable to get good pictures due to the reflections on the glass from the windows.   If I can get some better pictures next week, I will show you some of the others. Here is one done by Hazel LeBlanc (better know as “Z”).

Birthday Celebration

Last Monday, March 30th, was my 95th birthday!  When I was born in 1920, it was unheard of for someone to reach that age and be in fairly good health.  How thankful I am to the miracles of modern science and medical technology that allow many people to reach that age and beyond. My mixed media group that meet weekly at the Senior Center gave a luncheon in my honor at the home of Mary Ellen Houck. (Thank you, Mary Ellen, for coordinating this get-together!)  Ten of us gathered there with a pot-luck lunch and fellowship.  Here are some pictures of the happy occasion ——— IMG_1308 IMG_1309 IMG_1310 IMG_1311 IMG_1313   Thanks for stopping by today —-and a BLESSED EASTER to all.
